Um grito na vida: Haynes
Arousing contempt and scorn from the far right and the American Family Association, Todd Haynes' Poison was a groundbreaking film in 1991, and its controversy paved the way for the New Queer Cinema movement. While I'm sure the filmmaker wouldn't want to qualify his work in such a way, since it stands on its own as a brilliant film, it is an important film from a political standpoint. One can quickly see that this would mean nothing were it not successful on an emotional, intellectual and entertainment level, to which it achieves something few art house films can touch and all should aspire to.
